Tove Lo – Habits lyrics

[Intro:]
Oh-Ooh
Oh-Ooh
Oh-Ooh

[Verse 1:]
I eat my dinner in my bathtub
Then I go to sexclubs
Watching freaky people gettin' it on
It doesn't make me nervous
If anything I'm restless
Yeah, I've been around and I've seen it all
I get home, I got the munchies
Binge on all my Twinkies
Throw up in the tub
Then I go to sleep
And I drank up all my money
Days get kinda lonely


[Chorus:]
You're gone and I gotta stay
High all the time
To keep you off my mind

Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
High all the time
To keep you off my mind
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
Spend my days locked in a haze
Trying to forget you babe
I fall back down
Gotta stay high all my life
To forget I'm missing you

Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh

[Verse 2:]
Pick up daddies at the playground
How I spend my daytime
Loosen up the frown,
Make them feel alive
I'll make it fast and greasy
I'm numb and way too easy


[Chorus:]
You're gone and I gotta stay
High all the time
To keep you off my mind
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
High all the time
To keep you off my mind
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
Spend my days locked in a haze
Trying to forget you babe
I fall back down
Gotta stay high all my life
To forget I'm missing you
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh

[Bridge x2:]
Staying in my play pretend
Where the fun, aint got no end
Ooh
Can't go home alone again
Need someone to numb the pain
Ooh


[Chorus:]
You're gone and I gotta stay
High all the time
To keep you off my mind

Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
High all the time
To keep you off my mind
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
Spend my days locked in a haze
Trying to forget you babe
I fall back down
Gotta stay high all my life
To forget I'm missing you
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh

    This song is about a woman who has gone through a break up or suffered the loss of the man that she was in love with. Because of this, she tries to do what anyone in her situation would do, which is try to stay as busy as possible, but she does it in a self destructive way. She engages in meaningless sex with multiple people that she truly doesn't care for because being miserable with company is better than being alone with your thoughts. But the thing about it is, you can get as high as you'd like on drugs and life, but at the end of the day, the person she truly wants to be with is never there. And that will always hurt.

    I think it's even worse than a break up. I'd say her man died, hence the lyrics "I have to stay behind". She's suicidal and really doesn't care any more, hence the destructive behaviour. Absolutely brilliantly written. I think it's a masterpiece! One of my favourite songs now. Erik.

    This song is about a female going through a rough break up. She was in love with him. She tries to keep her self busy as what anyone else would do. She engages into stuff like having s** with multiple strangers or even smoking and drinking. She was very miserable as you can tell, sadly.

    The song is basically about a woman suffering from a rough break up or the loss of someone she loves. The woman becomes a self destructive person and she lives a chaotic lifestyle to forget the man she loves. She attempts to forget him by keeping herself busy by having sex with multiple men and possibly drinking and smoking. The men obviously mean nothing to her but she still sleeps with them to keep the man she loves off her mind. She just wants to keep the man she loves off her mind because she doesn't want to think about everything that she has been through with him and the loss/breakup. She would rather be miserable sleeping with men she doesn't love than be alone with her thoughts about the man she loves. She also lives this chaotic lifestyles because the high from it numbs her pain from the break up/loss.
